It’s the fifth straight trip for Clark to the championship game.

The outgoing eighth graders will leave as city champs in every year they played.

By shutting out Hayes, Clark stayed unblemished on the scoreboard as well.  The Eagles were never scored on this season.

Jaylen Lawson rushed it 13 times for 154 yards and three scores as the Eagles ‘D’ held the Panthers to 23 yards of total offense.
